CHICAGO -- Joakim Noah's run with the Bulls may have ended Saturday night when the team announced that the 6-foot-11 center has a dislocated shoulder that would require surgery and would sideline him for four to six months.
Noah sustained the injury Friday night at the United Center where he tangled with Mavericks center JaVale McGee for a rebound in the opening quarter of Dallas' 83-77 victory.
Noah, 30, was the Bulls' No.9 pick in the 2007 NBA draft. He is in the final year of a $60 million contract extension in 2010.He becomes an unrestricted free agent this July.
According to ESPN Chicago's Nick Friedell, "both sides may decide it may be time for a fresh start elsewhere, especially if the Bulls are unwilling to make a financial commitment to Noah's liking."
With a diminished role as a bench player logging just 21.2 minutes per, Noah averaged only 4.3 points and 8.8 rebounds in 29 games this season. (HDS)
